This seemed like a bad ale to me not a Pilsener. Thin head. Malty, almost roasty aroma. Too sweet and lacking character.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
May 4 2012. Pours cloudy yellow with thin white soapy head which immediately dissolves to ring. Little lacing. Aroma is cereal, straw, hints of roasted malt or oats. Taste is primarily the same; cereal and straw with a nice hint of roasted grains in finish. No sweet or bitter aftertaste but good crisp mouthfeel with slight alcohol on moderate carbonated palate. Really just par pilsner but enjoyable.

341mL bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw colour with some moderate, sticky white head. Aroma is mostly fruity, apple juice, hints of malt and hops. Taste is very mild, some hops and a little sour. Body is so effervescent it disappears as soon as it is in my mouth. It’s just... gone. Overall, it’s like Labatt Blue if it were actually kind of good.

Draught at Volo, Toronto
Deep blond color, with compact head. The aroma is anonymous, a bit papery and yeasty. Dry mouthfeel, with the same profile. The bitterness is stronger than the average

This is a very ordinary beer in all respects. Very middle of the road aroma, some bits of sweetness. Palate is a little dry. Not exactly a good buy for me.

Crockett (1093) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pale straw and hazy. Tiny head. Minimal lemony wheat aroma. Mild yeasts and apricot. Minerals. Doesn’t look lagered. Some caramel in the finish. Bland.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Draught @ Hostex: My due diligence warning - tasting this the day after King’s Pils at the brewery is probably not going to bode well for Stonehammer. Pours nice - vibrant yellow, good carbonation, with a bountiful marshmallow white head. Aroma is of fruit, perhaps apple, with malt. Flavour is very dry with adequate hoppy bitterness, and splashes of sweetness to balance things out. Quite accessible as a pale lager, but not terribly true to style.

DerWeg (1594) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
More of a decent American lager than a pilsner. Not so bad as such but just not as clean or defined as say Neustadt Lager. Certainly lacks hoppy detail for a pilsner, there is some bitterness but it lacks the floral dimensions. Not a go-back beer for me.

Solid pilsner. Great appearance but lacks the hoppy kick of a great pils. Would drink again but not seek it out
